Employment Resume Tips from Peter Weddle

A Resume That’s Catnip to Employers

According to a recent survey, almost all of us are always looking for a better job. So, here’s some unconventional advice.

Never look complete. Unlike in times past, when the goal was to look as finished as possible, today you want to position yourself as a “work in progress.”

As I describe in my novel called A Multitude of Hope, the key to success is now perpetual growth. Whether you have a PhD or an Associate’s degree, whether you have 30 years of experience or 30 minutes, whether you’re the intergalactic commander-in-chief of your organization or a member of the staff, you have to be adding new skills and knowledge all of the time.

How does that influence the way you look for a new job?

The strongest resume today isn’t one that describes you as fully educated and experienced. It’s one that makes you look on your way to something better.

To convey that impression, simply take two steps:

  1. Make progress. Enroll in a training program or academic course that will upgrade your expertise in your primary field of work or add ancillary skills that will expand your range of work potential.

  2. Strut your stuff. Add that development experience to your resume. For example, you might add to the Education section, Introduction to Business Spanish, Bronx Community College, On-going.

That kind of entry is catnip to employers. It sends two powerful subliminal messages that they can’t resist: First, it says that you understand that continuous development is a prerequisite for competent work in today’s ever-changing economy. And second, it signals that you take personal responsibility for pursuing that development.

Add those aspects to your personal brand and you won’t always have to be looking for a better job. Better jobs will come looking for you.

Work Strong,
Peter
